You are the engineer of a futuristic train and you have a big problem. All of the rail cars attached to your engine are in the wrong order! The cars are arranged from high number to low. You can’t leave the station until all the cars are arranged from low to high. The first engineer to get their train in the proper order will win the Game of Trains!

Game of Trains is a fast fun card game. The artwork speaks to geek culture with tons of nerdy genre references but the game itself is easy enough for your grandma to play and enjoy.

This makes the game accessible to a wide audience.

It also makes the game Major Fun!

Team Play is game that draws deep from the well of classic card games. With hints of Rummy, Pinochle and even a little Euchre, anyone familiar with these classics will feel like you almost already know how to play.

You and your partner have goal cards you hope to achieve to score points. The goals ask you to collect sets of cards based on the colort or number, or both. There’s also a public goal that any team can try to accomplish.

The trick and twist to Team Play is that you can help your partner by passing cards each turn. If you pay close attention to the cards everyone is collecting, you’ll have a good idea of what cards could help or hurt your chances of success.

Tune in to learn why we think Team Play is a modern classic and most assuredly… Major Fun!
